ORLANDO – Bruce W. McNeilage, Co-founder and CEO of Kinloch Partners and Kinloch Homes, recently contributed $15,000 to the Crossman Career Builders Scholarship at Florida A&M University (FAMU) and is seeking other supporters to match it.

Deserving and talented minority students at FAMU have an opportunity to pursue a real estate education by applying for funds from the endowed Crossman Career Builders scholarship that will help cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, supplies, and other expenses.

After a three decades-long successful career in the investment business with the NYSE and boutique firms, McNeilage founded Kinloch Partners and Kinloch Homes with offices in Atlanta and Nashville and built more than 16 subdivisions throughout the Southeast.

A fellow FSU grad and long-time friend and colleague of John Crossman, McNeilage joins in the mission of Crossman Career Builders to provide more opportunities for minorities in the Commercial Real Estate industry.

“I’m supporting the Crossman Career Builders Scholarship because I believe that John’s vision of providing real estate education at HBCUs is vital for the success of all communities,” McNeilage said, adding, “And FAMU, specifically, has produced numerous real estate leaders who have made an impact in the industry.”

Crossman endowed the first ever real estate scholarships at FAMU and other HBCUs. Within the last decade he has been speaking at industry events about the merits of giving back in the name of education and specifically providing more opportunities in real estate education to talented minority students.

“Some people talk.  Others get it done. Bruce is one of those rare individuals willing to personally sacrifice so that others can realize their dreams.  He is giving, and he is pursuing other individuals or companies to do the same,” Crossman said.
